Samsung has updated a handful of its devices to Lollipop, but those updates haven’t been without bugs. Fortunately, the company hears all the complains, and they’ll supposedly be working on some smaller updates to get everything sorted out for “various devices,” at least according to the Samsung Mobile UK Twitter account.

Lollipop on the 1st generation Moto X has been a bit of a sore spot for Motorola, and the device is still sitting on Android 4.4. Motorola has committed to upgrading the device straight to Android 5.1 and skip 5.0 completely, but even that has taken longer than usual due to supposed issues with the processor in the device.
Motorola’s David Schuster has taken to Google Plus to try to reassure users that the update is still on the way. It’s not quite ready to start rolling out to devices, but Motorola is going to begin testing the update on devices in the US and Latin America. If this soak test goes well, the company hopes to begin a full rollout in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed. Read more
Google has finally pushed the Android 5.1.1 update to Nexus 9 Wi-Fi devices. The factory image was already posted and now we have the link to the official over-the-air update as well.

Android 5.0.2 was already pushed about a week or so ago, so if you won’t have it, you will need to flash that OTA update first. You can also opt for flashing the factory image, but you will lose your data if your Nexus 9 doesn’t have an unlocked bootloader.
